Throughout his studies, Joe Bendoski was fascinated by all the insights science provided into human behavior, only to realize most of the information never reached people, and when it did, rarely was it in a form that allowed for practical application. He started writing non-fiction but soon realized how few people read that genre and began the difficult transition into fiction writing. His non-fiction works include; the Chemistry of Attraction and the Language of Emotion. He worked as the head writer for the television show ‘Saved by Grace.’ After being frustrated with comments like "make this scene cheaper," and "Do we need this scene?" he deiced to move into literature. "History provides a venue for us to look at ideas in entirely new ways. If I say I'm writing about peer pressure most people think that's a teenage issue. If I reference the history of the Nazi party it completely changes how people think about the idea. That's what I try to do with my writing. I write historical fiction because history can change how we understand certain ideas." "My series is intended to rob the persuasions machines and propaganda producers of their power of influence. To empower people to see how the tricks work then disassemble them." "I think a good story entertains, a great story stays with you. It leaves you thinking about the world differently." PODCAST: The Start Writing Podcast is focused on in-depth discussions about writing craft, and how writers develop their own writing skills. Each month a discussion piece is released, along with several author interviews. Website www.joseph-bendoski.comRead more Read less
